It’s time to unleash your superpowers with this Printable Captain America & Flash Mask that will give your Superhero Party the extra punch it needs!
If you could have a superpower, what would it be? For me, it’s a tie between getting to be invisible at will and being able to fly. Anyway I can move around unnoticed!
I’m sure fans of the superhero universe have more detailed wishlists for superpowers, and that’s admirable! Have you considered that the superpower we wish for may have something to do with our innermost desires and/or fears?
Consider the character of Flash, for example. Being super slow, like a sloth, it’s often a point of ridicule among others. But a stroke of lightning changes everything for him, and he becomes the super speedster we all know – the Flash!
Captain America is truly a hero for our times. Fighting against evil who try to oppress people, the Captain uses his indestructible shield to save America, and the world.
So let’s celebrate these two superheros today, with an easy craft – a printable Captain America and Flash Mask. All you need is colored paper and paper straws, so get crafting now!
